Georgina Gavriel


Approach and background

I think of psychotherapy as a conversation between two people, with you as the primary focus. It is a space and time in which we can think together about what troubles, motivates or preoccupies you. How to make use of this space is not predetermined, but discovered in the process of our meeting together. 

I chose to train at The Philadelphia Association (PA) for its unique culture in questioning contemporary treatment of and thinking about distress. The PA places emphasis in the specificity of each persons experience in this world, with acute sensitivity to how our close relationships and wider society influence that experience. We follow psychoanalytic theory as well as continental philosophy in order to think through the complexities of human suffering. 

Training, qualifications and experience

I am currently completing my studies as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the Philadelphia Association (UKCP accredited) and work in mental health. With a background in social care and interest in people, I have experience of working in the community, NHS and voluntary sectors.
